Hamas TV About Dead Gaza Civilians: It Was Their Time Anyway
"Every soul has its time. These people - their time had come, and they were martyred ..."

Hamas is trying to justify and its use of human shields to the Gaza population. In explaining the many civilian deaths on Hamas TV, they displayed gruesome pictures of dead civilians while the TV host explained that since in Islam a person's time of death is predetermined by Allah, the people who have been killed in the recent fighting have actually received the benefit of dying as martyrs. They would have died now anyway, but now they will receive the rewards of martyrdom in paradise.
“Every soul has its time. These people - their time had come, and they were Martyred (i.e., Gaza civilians killed in war). They have gained [Paradise]. They have nothing in this world, especially in the Gaza Strip. There's no life in the Gaza Strip. What life can we have in the Gaza Strip? Being with Allah is better. Being with Allah is better. What we see is very hard but we won't surrender, Allah willing. The first to say it are the Martyrs' family. The first to say it are the Martyrs' mothers and fathers... Don't be disturbed by these images. He who was killed this way doesn't feel. By Allah, he does not feel. These are not my words, but the words of our beloved Prophet [Muhammad]: He who is Martyred doesn't feel. Only we suffer by these images. By Allah, [the Martyr] doesn't feel. His soul has ascended to Allah. His soul is with the Lord. His soul is inside a green bird. He is with Allah now. He is in Paradise. Only we suffer by these images... In other cities, in other countries, thousands die in earthquakes, floods, plane crashes, in ferry or shipwrecks, in natural or unnatural disasters. Thousands die. Thousands die but we don't know what their fate is with Allah. But we [in Gaza] are Martyrs. The enemy has killed us and we are Martyrs.http://www.truthrevolt.org//israel-revolt/hamas-tv-about-dead-gaza-civilians-it-was-their-time-anyway
